About Raffia

Raffia is an online magazine with informative and opinionated articles on issues of gender and diversity, affiliated with the Radboud University Gender & Diversity Studies. Raffia has a wide audience that keeps track of key concepts in gender studies and has articles in both English and in Dutch. It’s not a scientific journal and therefore offers possibilities of opening up different and new perspectives. We are based in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. However, since we are an online magazine, you can work remotely from wherever you are located.
